The Long Jumper appears in expanded form in Förstår Du?.
Dog collar mascara Punkers sit on the steps in plumage envy Of iridescent pigeons that fly over the square. Perhaps it is the long jumper that stirred them to flight Competing in his Olympiad of one. He pretends the there, the sand pit and crowd He pretends the sunshine glory and adrenalin. He works so hard to imagine so much While he longs only For the flock's clean chorus Of wriggling warm bodies That harmonize as if a resonant thread of silk Stretched between each tiny beating heart.
